High Speed Rail

One of my students asked me to write a piece of "train music" for Summer Strings. What started out as a compendium of old train songs (they never seemed to make it into the piece) ended up as a way of working out my deep desire for having high speed rail in this country. I hope that during my lifetime (which I do hope lasts another 40 or so years) I'll have the chance to travel across America on high speed rail. The score and parts are available here; and you can enjoy this slide show with a computer-generated recording, and share my moment of train love.
